Retro Recipe: Saturday Pie (WWII)

It’s time for another recipe! First, the recipe. Then, me blathering onward about my occasionally questionable culinary capabilities and the memories this particular feast holds for me.

  • The Ingredients
    • Mashed Potatoes
    • Cooked ground meat of choice
    • Onion, diced
    • Gravy
  • The Way of Preparing
    1. Using a pie pan, spread a layer of mashed potatoes down to make a crust.
    2. Layer the ground meat, onion, and your choice of spices.
    3. Top with gravy and another layer of mashed potatoes.
    4. Bake at 350°F until the ‘pie’ is heated through.
  • Notes
    • It seems like it’s a precursor or wartime variant of cottage pie, honestly.
    • I’ve added sweet corn or frozen vegetables to it as well.
